Learn more about LED and maintenance costs
LED stands for ‘Light Emitting Diode‘, a semiconductor device that converts electricity into light. Super energy efficient and long lasting , LEDs use approximately 85% less energy than halogen or incandescent lighting, which means significant savings on your power bills.
LED Cents is a premiere distributor that has direct access to the best factories in the world that create LEDs and other lighting and sustainable products. Due to our volume and nature of the contracts we hold we can provide our clients with cutting edge technology at a lower cost than the current, soon to be outdated, off the shelf solutions.
We are not your average distributor – LED Cents consults all across the country on how to do entire facility LED retrofits. This means that we have the experience and the products to fully convert an entire facility, not just part of it leaving the maintenance team and operating budget with unnecessary additional expenses.
LED Cents can be directly attributed to several LED products created or modified in the recent years. Since many of our projects are converting entire buildings at once we have been forced to help push the barrier for new products that have forward thinking features and functionality while also being designed for the simplest retrofit installation costs.
Electricity doesn’t stop at the lamps. With Master Electricians on staff you can breathe easy knowing your buildings infrastructure will be kept intact, up to code, and any existing issues will be properly identified and fixed.

A Building Management System (BMS) or a (more recent terminology) Building Automation System (BAS) is a computer-based control system installed in buildings that controls and monitors the building’s mechanical and electrical equipment such as ventilation, lighting, power systems, fire systems, and security systems. A BMS consists of software and hardware; the software program, usually configured in a hierarchical manner, can be proprietary, using such
protocols as C-Bus, Profibus, and so on. Vendors are also producing BMSs that integrate using Internet protocols and open standards such as DeviceNet, SOAP, XML, BACnet, LonWorks and Modbus.
Building Management Systems are most commonly implemented in large projects with extensive mechanical, HVAC, electrical, and plumbing systems. Systems linked to a BMS typically represent 40% of a building’s energy usage; if lighting is included, this number approaches to 70%. BMS systems are a critical component to managing energy demand. Improperly configured BMS systems are believed to account for 20% of building energy usage, or approximately 8% of total energy usage in the United States.
In addition to controlling the building’s internal environment, BMS systems are sometimes linked to access control (turnstiles and access doors controlling who is allowed access and egress to the building) or other security systems such as closed-circuit television (CCTV) and motion detectors. Fire alarm systems and elevators are also sometimes linked to a BMS, for monitoring. In case a fire is detected then only the fire alarm panel could shut off dampers in the ventilation system to stop smoke spreading and send all the elevators to the ground floor and park them to prevent people from using them.
